A Moment in Time

Hi everyone!  I want to share a layout with you using Gina's Designs "A Moment In Time Clock Frame".  If you haven't noticed I have been scrapping a lot of wedding layouts...since May!  LOL! When I saw this beautiful piece of chipboard I knew it would be used for a wedding layout.  So many of Gina's Lazercuts can be used for weddings and formal occasions but they are also versatile enough for many other everyday occasions. Here is my layout and I used a technique that I previously used on the Fall Wreath I shared last week.

Directions for the Clock Frame chipboard.
Step 1. Color your chipboard with black acrylic paint. 
Step 2. Cover the chipboard with VersaMark Ink. 
Step 3. Cover with Utee Clear Embossing Enamel and heat.
Step 4. Spray with your favorite spray inks and reheat.

Eerie Tale Halloween Card

Hi Everyone!   Today I want to share a fun Halloween card using Graphic 45's Eerie Tale. This has to be one of my favorite Halloween releases ever and you can get it right here in the Eclectic Paperie store.  It's simply gorgeous and I had a hard time putting it down. It begs to be fussy cut and that's exactly what I did. I added several layers of papers and fussy cut pieces and gave this card lots of dimension.

I used some Viva Decor to rub the embossed card base and then of course finished rubbing all the die cut edges with it as well. I distressed all the edges and then inked them with Distress Ink In Black Soot.

On a final note, this will be my last post with the Eclectic Paperie.  I'm leaving and taking a little break before I start working for a team that will start in October.  I want to thank Kim and this amazing team for allowing me to keep company with amazing amazing talent and wonderful people.  Thanks so much to everyone!!

Gina's Designs Celebrates Fall

Hello everyone! Fall is my favorite time of year...the smells the beautiful flowers and the cool mornings and warm days.  I always decorate for fall and this year is no exception. Gina's Designs made that easy for me this year.  Gina has the cutest fall chipboard in her store and I had a great time creating this project.

This project is one of my favorites....I used several techniques to create this project.  For the Scarecrow I simply used some scrap fabric that has been sitting around forever and dressed my scarecrow.

Here is the directions for the chipboard pumpkins and banner kit.

Step 1. Color your chipboard with ink. I used Distress ink in Rusty Hinge , Dyed Tea and Shabby Shutters. 
Step 2. Cover the chipboard with VersaMark Ink. 
Step 3. Cover with Utee Clear Embossing Enamel and heat.
Step 4. Spray with your favorite spray inks and reheat.  

Hope you give this a try I can guarantee you will try it again and again.

Fall Flowers and some photos

Hi everyone, just a quick post today to share some photos I took yesterday while I was out on a photo shoot.  I did a photo shoot  for a couple celebrating their 25th anniversary soon.  We took their photos in the park at the botanical gardens.  While I was out there I took advantage of the butterfly garden and all the beautiful fall flowers.

I was surprised to learn that my favorite Fall flower wasn't planted this year. The sunflower.  When I asked one of the gardener's why he told me that last year someone vandalized the gardens and cut them all down.  I was so disheartened that someone would do this to their beautiful flowers.  I guess I have to locate some for my annual photos.

We have had our first snow already but it wasn't enough to do any damage.....so glad for that.  I'm hoping for a long beautiful fall this year.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!  Lots to share this week so stop by again!

Paris, Gina's Designs and ATC's

Hello everyone!   Today I want to share some fun ATC's I created with Gina's Designs  1 " Scalloped Punchelements.  These embellishments are so cute..they resemble bottle caps but they're made with chipboard! Now these are simple ATC's but the punchelements give that extra finishing touch.  These can be altered to fit any theme you'd like to create.
I thought these went perfect with the Paper collection by Graphic 45.  
Gina also has several other chipboard designs that would compliment this paper line. Be sure to go shop though Gina's Store for more ideas and inspiration.

 Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
